Sebastian Vettel goes Hollywood in Web seriesFri, 11 May 2012
Red Bull-Infiniti driver Sebastian Vettel made his small-screen debut on Friday in a new series from Infiniti
named Kung Fu Vettel: Drive of the Dragon. Vettel stars alongside actress Celina Jade in the short-action commercial/film.
This is the first in the series that eventually will include Red Bull teammate Mark Webber.
The video starts on what looks to be a date between Vettel and Jade. They drive to the old part of the Chinese city before falling into some drama involving a meek-looking local resident. Of course the Infiniti FX50 S is involved. At one point the local jumps in for safety, and later, Vettel uses the seatbelts to restrain one of the attackers, complete with a one liner about being safe.
Sure, it's a bit cheesy, but we like the fact that Vettel doesn't take himself too seriously. We'd guess that he won't be receiving a call from the Academy anytime soon.
